    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325.
    2. 2
      Grease only the bottom of a 9-inch round cake pan and cover with a circle of parchment paper. Do not grease the sides of the pan.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, beat egg yolks until light, gradually adding in the sugar. Add in vanilla and lemon and set aside.
    4. 4
      In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy, about 1 minute at high speed, then beat in the salt and cream of tartar. Continue beating until the eggs reach soft peaks. Fold egg whites, working in 3 or 4 batches, into the yolk mixture.
    5. 5
      Sift the flour over the egg mixture, again working in 3 or 4 batches, and gently fold it inches When the batter is uniform, pour into prepared cake pan and bake unil a tester comes out dry and the top of the cake springs back when gently pressed, about 35-45 minutes.
    6. 6
      Allow cake to cool in the pan before cutting around the sides with a sharp knife and turning it out.
    7. 7
      Slice the cake into 2 or 3 layers (or squares) and fill as desired.

      Lovely and golden on the outside, perfect texture on the inside! I was looking for a nice simple single layer to make a lighter Boston Cream pie, and this was exactly what I was looking for. I used extra vanilla instead of the lemon. To make the light Boston Cream pie, I split the cake into two layers and filled it with diet Jello pudding to which I added extra vanilla. I topped it with a thin layer of semi-sweet chocolate melted with a bit of milk. Delicious!
